I'll contradict Hamish, but then I don't really like the debian-kernel method 
(especially the stupid and irrelevant warnings it always give me)

If you already compiled your kernel yourself, there is no need to use debian 
tool to do it.

After configure, just use these three command to build the kernel :
$ make
$ make modules_install
$ make install   

"make install" will copy the correct version of the compiled kernel (you were 
using the uncompressed kernel, which doesn't boot anymore) to /boot

After that, you can add an entry to your boot method of choice. I recommend 

Surfing in the Japanese Alps sound good.
